FSC ANZ Board Nominations - Now Open

Responsible Forest Management Australia Limited (RFMAL), trading as FSC ANZ , is now seeking nominations for up to five (5) Director positions to its Board.

After the challenges of 2020, the FSC ANZ Board is looking forward to focusing on our new strategic direction and the opportunities for growth across the FSC network.

The role of the new Board will be vital as we support our existing certificate holders, increase the forest area under certification, deepen the commitment to FSC certification within the supply chain, and activate our retail supporters to build consumer awareness of the importance of our brand.

Directors are elected for three (3) year terms and elected by the FSC ANZ members and appointed at FSC ANZ’s AGM.

The Board is comprised of nine (9) Directors, three (3) from each sectoral chamber.  Appointments are staggered and occur yearly, such that three (3) positions become available every year. This year, due to a number of casual vacancies, we have five open director positions.

Board Member Chamber Vacancy Reason for Vacancy
